PE day is Wednesday.

Homework

Homework is set every Friday and is due in on or before the following Wednesday. This will be both maths and literacy. There are also activities on the Active Learn Website – login details are in the front of your child link book.

Reading

Our class book is… The Man Who Bought a Mountain

Reading books will be changed once your child has read and it has been signed by an adult. They also have Bug Club books on the Active Learn Website -login details can be found in the front of your child’s link book. At least 2 ‘Bug Club’ books are to be read each half term.

Your child has a class book that they are enjoying during ‘quiet reading’ time. This book will remain in school.

The school Library is up and running again! We will visit the school library on a Tuesday where your child will be able to choose a book to read in school or share at home.

Please encourage reading at home. This can be a book (fiction or non-fiction), magazine, recipe book or even the back of the cereal box. Even if your child is an able reader it is important that you listen to them read regularly. We will endeavour to listen to your child during whole class, group reading sessions or individually regularly.

If you are looking for inspiration as to what to get your child to read or maybe for a birthday or Christmas gift; look at the suggestions on the link below.
